  1. You might see a photo of these around the net. There is a photo of John Lovat warring one in the author bio picture in Contact (1) It may have been made for Allen Savory’s Tracker Combat Unit, a group of territorial soldiers trained in tracking down terroirists after incidents or sightings. The TCU was a top rate unit operated silently 4 men per det 1 tracking, 2 flank guards and 1 controller. Everyone had to wear shorts and food and survival gear carried in 2 bandoliers, ( hence no top pockets). 7.62 FNFAL and a couple of ammo pouches on a belt a water was carried but it could only be full or dead empty. The photo at the start of this tread is of a tracking team controller as he’s got a radio. These teams could be out for weeks on a follow up.
